Chichibu distillery is a rising star in the market. The owner, Mr. Ichiro, is the heir of Akuto family which established a famous distillery Hanyu. Mr. Ichiro acquired all stocks of Hanyu after Hanyu closed and soon established his own distillery Chichibu in 2008. Chichibu whisky is highly praised by connoisseurs. You won’t believe such an excellent whisky is such young and coming from a new Japanese distillery.
